White House: US and UK will not allow to continue using chemical weapons in Syria

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – Washington and London will not allow the continued use of chemical warfare agents in Syria and beyond. This was agreed in a telephone conversation on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

As reported by the White House press service, “the leaders condemned … the disregard of the lives of people by the president of Syria [Bashar] Asad.”

“The President [of the United States] and the Prime Minister [of Great Britain] agreed not to allow the continued use of chemical weapons,” the press service noted.

No other details of the conversation are given.

On Monday, the head of the US administration threatened to take military measures against the Syrian authorities in connection with the alleged use of poisonous substances in the Syrian village of Dumas near Damascus.

The responsibility for this incident is laid on Washington by Damascus. Meanwhile, Russia said that it was a provocation that there were no traces of the use of ammunition with chemical weapons in the Duma.
